Beatbox: 10,371,502,091 but I guess this is going to require some explaining.

Pinball Dreams only has space on the scoreboard for 10 digits, so 9,999,999,999 is the highest score it can show. Unfortunately if you get a higher score than that, it just wraps round to 0. I knew there was a chance this could happen so I started taking regular screenshots, and at the last second as I lost my final ball I set WinUAE to do a video output to show my bonus being added. I have also posted my last screenshot showing I had 2,778,651,091 shortly before losing the final ball



Here's the video

[ Show youtube player ]

The final bonus was two lots of 3,796,378,000, so if you add that to the score in my screenshot just before I lost the final ball:

2,778,651,091 +
3,796,378,000 +
3,796,378,000 =

10,371,407,091 which is almost the same as the 10,371,502,091 I actually got, except the game truncated the score down to 371,502,091 (as you can see at the end of the video).

I hope that's enough evidence, I'll happily answer any questions from the mods/other competitors if necessary. I've previously posted the method to achieve scores like this here and here.

Amazing score. I salute you sir. Yeh I read Capehorns explanation of this process previously. You'll notice my obvious token effort on beat box so far as I was building up to trying this out. Although I've never achieved it myself.

By the way Capehorn I appreciate your evidence provision. I'm conscious of posting crazy scores myself but in this instance I don't doubt you for a minute.

Great score and it takes this round into an entirely different level. It's a bit like when that guy introduced the flop technique into high jumping.

Yes, that suffices.

Well done!

Thanks everyone.

I've played Pinball Dreams thousands of times over the years but I'd never bothered with the bonus accumulator method, even though I had heard of it, until we played this in the Superleague in 2011. It's possible to do on the other tables as well but I think this is the easiest table to do it on by far. It's the method I've used everytime I've tried Beat Box on this round, but I kept losing the run after I got the bonus up to about 7-8m. On this game I got it up to 28m before ending the run, and I had a score of about 300m. Then I managed to get another run going on the next ball and this was the result.

Could I suggest that for practical reasons it might be a good idea to call the maximum score on this table 9,999,999,999 and award that score to anyone who shows that they have wrapped the score? I think that you can wrap the bonus (i.e. if you have a bonus of 5,001,000,000 and double it, it will become a bonus of only 2,000,000 - the 10 billion will be lost) which makes scores above 10b pretty random and unworkable.

When I wrapped the score in 2011 I think I doubled my bonus a few more times too, the actual score could have been anything, maybe hundreds of billions but I couldn't keep track, thankfully I was able to ditch the ball at one point with a score in the high 9 billions so I had a screenshot I didn't have to explain too much.

Good suggestion because not everyone is able to make a video. Modified your score.
